Bonneville/Seattle's KIRO-FM and Hubbard Radio/Seattle's KQMV-FM (MOViN 92.5), KRWM-FM (Warm 106.9) and KNUC (98.9 The Bull), have announced a partnership during the COVID-19 Pandemic. The three music stations will broadcast hourly local news updates from the KIRO newsroom, providing their listeners with the latest information on COVID-19 and offering a place to stay connected with our region on a daily basis.

In return, KIRO will encourage listeners to pause from the news and listen to the music stations as a source of encouragement and relaxation in this extraordinary time. This collaboration will go into effect on Friday, March 27.

"We are thrilled to partner with the Hubbard stations," said Bonneville Seattle Media Group Director of Programming Mike Salk. "To have KIRO Radio news played on three excellent music stations is an opportunity for us help our community stay informed in this unique time. And we can understand the need to take a break and listen to music to avoid feeling overwhelmed."

"Music is a mood elevator and a source of inspiration for people when times are tough," said Hubbard Radio/Seattle Market Manager Scott G. Mahalick. "We're proud to partner with Bonneville's news, talk and sports radio stations in Seattle. Combined, we are able to offer the perfect balance of information and entertainment."
